Philadelphia partner Stephen C. Baker and Princeton partner Richard S. Goldman have been recognized by the BTI Consulting Group as Client Service All Stars for 2015. BTI arrived at a list of just 354 honorees after interviewing more than 320 corporate counsel at large and Fortune 1000 companies.

The six traits of Client Service All-Stars are superior client focus; innovative thought leadership; unmatched business understanding; legal skills; outsized value and outstanding results.

Baker is the leader of the firm’s Insurance Department and represents major insurance company groups in business litigation, regulatory, coverage and claims matters.
